Global Policy for IPv6 - Background Report for Early Awareness of a Policy Proposal

6 September 2005

The development of Global Internet Number Resource Policies is the subject of an MoU between ASO/NRO and ICANN. There are also specific ICANN Board Procedures, adopted by the Board on 15 July 2005, for handling global policy proposals in this context. These procedures contain a provision for tracking developments in order to ensure early awareness of such proposals.

At its meeting on 16 August 2005, the Board resolved to request such tracking of the development of a global policy proposal for allocation of IPv6 address space, under way in the Regional Internet Registries. A first background report with a status overview in table format has now been prepared by ICANN staff and posted on the web. It will be timely updated as developments proceed, for information to ICANN entities and the wider community.
